Keir Starmer Shortens Further To Replace Boris Johnson
Next Prime Minister After Boris Johnson
Keir Starmer’s hopes of taking Boris Johnson’s place in No. 10 are more likely according to the latest odds after we received significant support following the Prime Minister’s speech on relaxing COVID-19 restrictions in the UK on Sunday evening.
On Monday morning punters requested odds on who will replace Boris Johnson, should he step down, with all the support was for the Labour Party leader Keir Starmer.
Starmer was initially introduced at 4/1 to be the one to move into No. 10, but those odds took a hammering on Monday and he is now the 13/8 favourite.
Boris Johnson was as big as 20/1 to step down as Prime Minister by the end of 2020 but following his speech on Sunday evening, the former Mayor of London is now just 6/1. Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak is 5/1 to replace Johnson, while First Secretary of the State Dominic Raab is the 16/1 third favourite.
